I have orders from both places for Rolls and Supplies... I found CA better in the packaging/shipment time but I would order from both again.

I have never ordered from J&M but Colonial Acres is one of my favorite dealers.

I have never ordered anything online from them, but I deal with them a lot at coin shows and there store in Kitchener, Ontario and I have never had a problem. I would expect the same from their online sales as well.

I've never order on-line from either place but I go to the J&M store at least once a week and purchase coins all the time. It's like being a kid in a candy store. I think their grading is pretty accurate and if you eliminate the shipping by shopping in person they do have some good prices. I've heard great things about both stores, so I think your in good hands with either.

I've dealt with both and have never had a problem. Shipping costs are a bit high though.

I've ordered a few silver coins from CA online last month. I got my coins in about 2 weeks (within Canada). The package itself is pretty good but one of the silver coin has slightly tonned. I have never purchased online from J&M.

In terms of fair price, CA has good deal twice a month and price usually fair. J&M pricing is on the high side, so I usually don't buy expensive item from them. I hope this help.

Colonial Acres is my main source (80%+ of my purchases) for items to re-sale. I purchase about $10,000 worth of coins from them each year, Shipping cost is very reasonable ($6.50 per order within Canada) but shipping is a little slow (about 2 weeks within Canada). However, I have had only a couple of issues and both were resolved to my satisifaction with a simple phone call. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. There prices are good. Two additional sources for me are http://www.gatewestcoin.com and http://www.imaginaire.com

I've had positive dealings with CA in the past, friendly and helpful.

The only trouble I've ever had was over the price of a NCLT item. Just make sure you do your shopping and all is well.

Well, Colonal Acres charges for too much shipping, but still somewhat reliable. J&M, the reputation is good.

Try not to buy anything out of eBay unless you have to.

In regards to eBay, I've been very fortunate to get some good coins for some good prices from some good people. It's like anything else, if you do your homework, know what you want to spend on a coin before getting caught up in the heat of an auction and read the sellers feedback I think eBay is a great place to buy.

I also use eBay to sell off my extra's. I wait until I have a few bucks in my Paypal account then spend it on coins I need.

Maybe I'm one of the few but I've had nothing but great purchases from eBay. However it's not my only source as I shop in person at coins shows, J&M and other local coin shops. eBay is just another coin store on-line and has definitely filled some holes in my collection.

As J & M are my local coins store I have dealt with them for a number of years for both coins and supplies. I have found the staff to be friendly and knowledgeable. I have also made some very good purchases from other dealers in the Lower Mainland as well as at coin shows. As far as the, much maligned, eBay is concerned I have bought items through several dealers with great success. You have to be patient, selective and draw your own conclusions as to the quality of a coin. Photos and descriptions can be unreliable.
